PaPa what color are your eyes?
Definitely Hershey Brown, but wait That thing that shines.
Within the light, your given sight might turn to a haze. But that’s why you got “readers” with you while you chill in the shade.
PaPa your eyes are your wisdom that you’ve given to the family tree. So I thank you and Granny, For passing such wisdom to me.
PaPa your eyes are fascinating that’s why I can never turn them away.
After all eye contact is the utmost respect as you and Granny would say. PaPa when I come of age I want my eyes to be like yours.
I can tell my mentality is since I’m not bombarded with chores.
So PaPa look in the mirror when I ask. What color are your eyes?
